Contracted to obstruct cycling

The inconsiderate contractors scheme is now fully operational across the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

'NO ENTRY' one-way street with contraflow lane for cyclists directly ahead. Queen Elizabeth Road E17.

No sooner are the markings down for the new off-road cycle lane outside Waltham Forest College than... contractors are digging it up:

And as you can see, great sensitivity has been employed to ensure that sufficient space has been left for cyclists on this two-way cycle lane:

There are no less than four contractors's signs in the cycle lane on High Road Leyton after the junction with Leyton Green Road. Here's two of them. All photographs taken yesterday.
